The Truth Behind Synthetic Oil Stories

You Need to Break In the Engine With Conventional Oil

This first myth comes with a little bit of truth to it since, way back when, it was necessary for you to break in the engine with conventional oil. Still, times, technology, and lubricants have changed since then, and you can now employ synthetic oil from the very beginning.

Synthetic Oil is Completely Artificial

While conventional and synthetic oil go through different processes once they get to the lab, they both come from one same primary source: natural oil. This means that, contrary to popular belief, synthetic oil isn't completely artificial and man-made.

It Voids the Vehicle's Warranty

This myth has no truth to it whatsoever. No, your vehicle's warranty won't be voided if you use synthetic oil on your engine. In fact, many manufacturers even recommend it. As long as you comply with the vehicle's requirements, you shouldn't have any problems with the warranty at all.

It Causes Cracks and Leaks

Once again, this myth has no reason of being. What happens here is that synthetic oil is considerably thinner in consistency than conventional oil which helps it find pre-existing cracks and leaks on the engine easily. If your engine leaks, address the issue promptly.

You Can Never Go Back

There's No Need to Replace It

This myth is the most dangerous of all. Yes, synthetic oil can be more resistant and may need to be changed less often than conventional oil. But, it does need to be replaced with regularity. If you don't, you run the risk of leaving your engine unprotected and more prone to damage.

Every time you change the oil in your vehicle, you should change the oil filter, as well. The oil filter restricts the entrance of dust, gunk, and other filth into the engine. If you fail to change it regularly, then you can bet your engine will suffer the consequences sooner or later.

Synthetic Oil is More Expensive

Finally, a synthetic oil bottle on the shelf will cost more than a conventional one. However, once you consider all of the money it will save you due to its superior performance, you'll realize that synthetic oil is actually the most cost-effective option.
